Procedure for Public Health Data Request

Our office has various data sources in-house and we know of many more. The best way to get a sense of the data we have available is to look at our reports, in particular the Community Health Assessment.

When requesting data or information from our office, it is helpful for you to provide us with the question(s) you need answered, the form or survey you are completing, instructions and definitions you receive from external agencies or the facts or issues being addressed. We are able to provide more accurate data by knowing the question(s) and/or the public health problem.
